Its main design feature is what the architects called Window to Heaven. To be seen on looking up while passing through on the street.

Inaugurated in 2013 it is architecturally wonderful and is a landmark in this part of the city.

Basel is deemed the country’s premier exhibition location and here dramatically adds to the accolade.

Looks awesome from the outside and when were there towards the end of the year it was a very festive atmosphere and also was close to numerous hotels. There is a big open area for children but the trams do run through. There was also a circus nearby when we were there.

We looked at the building only from the outside - it has a very interesting modern architecture, but is located relatively far from the historic center. It is worth seeing only if you have extra time available.

We stayed in a hotel nearby and took the tram from this amazing place. Just like the Pantheon in Rome this place drag you to the sky and back.

We did not go inside but waited for the tram in the open-air center of this huge and impressive building. Basel is a city of many surprises and this is one of them. One walks among the historic architecture along Clarastrasse or the quiet streets of the Wettstein neighborhood, turn the corner, then pow, there's the Messe. It's a bit sterile and impersonal but still impressive.

In this March i went on Basel to attend Baselworld, the biggest watch event. This fair was held at Messe,Basel.A very big building with an beautiful architectural entrance. The big hole at the entrance is an beautiful engineering work. Just beside that the famous Basel tramline is there where you can move any part of Basel.Some big hotels and lovely restaurants are all around the square. Its worth visiting there

Visited Baselworld 2018 which is held here.

The architecture is fantastic and well worth seeing the hole in the middle of the building (as well as the trams going through the middle of the exhibition halls).

Very easy to get to by tram, or a good walk from the station for those feeling fit). The facilities were excellent and the show was great.

Not sure what other events are held here but the architecture alone is worth a visit!
